WEST BATH, Maine — The Sagadahoc County Sheriff’s Department charged a Brunswick woman with operating under the influence of drugs after she drove off the road Friday night.

According to Lt. Calvin Temple, Cortney Moulton, 27, of 472 Princes Point Road in Brunswick, was driving a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee on New Meadows Road until the vehicle went off the road and came to a stop.

No one was injured. A passenger was outside the vehicle when the deputy arrived and reported that Moulton wears contacts and can’t see well at night.

The deputy could smell marijuana wafting from the vehicle, Temple said. Moulton said she hadn’t been drinking alcohol. The deputy noticed her eyes were bloodshot and glassy and her speech was slurred.

Temple said Moulton underwent an intoxilizer test at the Bath police station. It showed she had no alcohol in her system, but a drug recognition expert evaluation resulted in Moulton’s arrest on charges of operating under the influence of drugs (marijuana).

Moulton posted bail from the Bath police station.
